When Your vision is clear and compelling, everything else falls into place
It feels so good to know you are on track. When you are sure of where you’re headed, have great goals in place and a step by step plan to make them happen, you can’t help but feel excited. You have no trouble taking action and achieving top results. Sounds awesome right?
Now let’s look at the more common reality. I talk to business owners and entrepreneurs every week and many of them feel uncertain about the direction of the business, overwhelmed or confused about what’s next. It’s like they’re going through the motions waiting to see what might happen. Or if they’re just starting out, the excitement of their idea has faded as the reality of being in business kicked in. One thing they do know for sure, it’s neither exciting nor compelling.
The good news is, it doesn’t have to be this like this (sounds cliche I know). But seriously, anyone is capable of creating or tapping into the vision they hold for the business and this is the number one place to start anytime you feel less than excited.
4 sure fire ways to get excited about your business
Don’t sit around feeling stressed or miserable, just take one of the following actions and you’ll be back on track in no time.
Get your vision crystal clear. If you’re feeling fuzzy, set aside and hour and really go into detail about what you want. If you need help with this, grab my free Vision for Success download .
Redefine your vision as the business grows. Things change and you learn and grow alongside your business. Make sure you are checking in often and making adjustments as needed.
Stay focused on your vision with dedicated 5 minutes per day reading or thinking about your dreams and goals.
Set proper goals in all areas of business. Well-defined goals equal clarity and without them you can’t make a plan of action. Hope is not a strategy and most importantly, when you’ve got clear goals and plans, the confusion and overwhelm goes away.
Do you know the number one cited reason for not having a clear and compelling vision? “I haven’t thought about it”. Ok then, get thinking and get excited because without it you’ll fall out of love with your business sooner or later. A little time invested in vision and planning now, will save you a lot of time and stress down the track.
